This Product Designer position for our Ecosystem stage group is 100% remote.
A brief overview:
GitLab is building an open source, single application for the entire software development lifecycle—from project planning and source code management to CI/CD, monitoring, and security.
We started 2019 with a team of 15 Product Designers and Researchers. Right now, we’re in a period of growth, we’re more than doubling the size of the Product Design team, and we’re increasing the number of GitLab employees to over 1000 this financial year, too.
At GitLab, we live and breathe open source principles. This means our entire handbook is online, and with a few clicks, you can find the details of future releases, check out our past releases, and see an overview of the product vision you’d contribute to when working here.
